2015

Garces spent most of the year dominating left-handed hitters at Double-A San Antonio, holding them to just two runs and a .124 batting average over 27.1 innings (0.66 ERA). He was certainly no slouch against right-handers, either, with a .240 BAA and 47:11 K:BB over 38 innings, but something strange happened in his time with the big club in the second half of the season. Garces posted a reverse platoon split, allowing a .250/.308/.458 batting line to left-handed hitters and a .182/.182/.273 line to right-handers, but it was a very small sample (nine innings) and Garces was still missing bats at a strong clip while limiting the free passes. He also recorded his first three career holds in the final two weeks of September, perhaps foreshadowing a prominent role toward the back-end of the bullpen in 2015. Alex Torres has likely earned the right to open the year as the top left-handed setup man to begin the year, but he struggled down the stretch and if the issues carry over into Cactus League play, Garces could usurp him for the job.
